Homemade festive fun – Paul Beresford reports

From a character cottage on Pudding Lane to a brand new townhouse tucked away down Mistletoe Mews, I’ve always enjoyed reading the papers’ annual round up of homes with Christmas-themed names.

Searching our own website this year I’ve managed to come up with a long list of properties we are delighted to be selling and have festive inspiration.

Here are just a handful that are sure to leave Essex buyers feeling Christmassy all year round. 

At the top of the list is Wisemans Cottage (left) in Great Waltham, which, rather appropriately, has three bedrooms. The semi detached, double fronted home also includes a home office and picket-fenced front garden.

Jesus’s first home was a stable but it’s a far cry from the luxury of Stable Lodge. The two bedroom freehold house is nestled in the landscaped grounds of the ancient village of Monken Hadley.

Parents Mary and Joseph are also popular for road and development names including this brand new chalet style home on St Mary’s Lane and a two bedroom penthouse apartment in Joseph’s Court.

Father Christmas himself would certainly feel at home in either of these Beresfords properties. Eversleigh Gardens (ever…sleigh…) features a luxury, open plan kitchen/diner while Deerleap Way is available with part exchange.

The summer is the best time to enjoy the impressive outdoor swimming pool at Church Road and savour the impressive garden hideaway at Bell Street (right) but both properties feature working fireplaces perfect for Santa to pay a visit this Christmas Eve.

But it seems the eternally evergreen holly is the most popular name for homes for sale in Essex, with no fewer than five bearing its name in our county. The 16th century Holly Tree Cottage (left) in Layer Breton and Romford’s Holly Court are just two examples.

If, reading this blog, you’ve been inspired to rename your home The Telegraph has a helpful online guide so you can see in next Christmas from the comfort of your own Gingerbread House.
